A poetic, immersive retelling of the Pocahontas story which reveals how our histories often hinge on our response to the arrival of strangers. This screening is a part of Richland Library's Not Like Me film festival celebrating diversity and promoting inclusion. Join us as we explore the issues of race, immigration, and identity with local experts. For this screening, we will hear from Dr. Woody Holton, Professor of History, and Dr. Jeffrey Turner, Professor of Philosophy.
